Overview

Simplify is a celebration of living more by owning less. Written by Joshua Becker, who inspires hundreds of thousands of people on his personal blog, this is a book that calls for the end of living lives seeking and accumulating more and more possessions by highlighting the enjoyment of living with less.

Three years ago, his typical, suburban family of four made the decision to minimize their possessions, declutter their home, and simplify their lives. In so doing, they discovered countless real-life benefits of living with less. And now, to help others experience the same freedom, they offer the most important lessons they’ve learned through the process. Simplify is full of personal stories, practical tips, and powerful inspiration.

It is based on a rational approach to minimalism. It will forever change the way you look at physical possessions. And most importantly, its approach will free you from the burden of clutter and provide you with the extra motivation to realign your life around your heart’s greatest passions… however you choose to define them.

    For Those Serious About Simplifying.

    Most useful and pragmatic, especially the list of things to do toward simplifying your daily life included at the end of the book. Take to heart and act upon even a few of the many suggestions in that list and you could change your mood and overall outlook for the better.

    Great Guide to Simplifying Life

    I purchased this eBook after reading about it on the author's blog. I enjoyed his straight forward guide to simplifying your life and the benefits you can derive from doing so. I am currently putting into practice much of what I gleaned from this book. I look forward to reading more from the author in the future, as this topic is of great interest to me.

    Read This!

    You could also call this "The Minimalist Book of Minimalism." It is brief but engaging, and lays out the implications of rational minimalism in practical terms. Love it.
